Different Skull models

We've discussed the existence of various sizes of models in the series before, but as I was putting together the Mecha section I noticed that the Skull isn't quite as well done as some of the others. Reason being that the close-up version which is used then the puppets are on its deck has a far more detailed skull bow piece than the model which is used in the action shots. The latter is lacking the whole of the jaw of the skull and seems to have much bigger eye sockets.It's not the sort of thing you'd notice unless you were doing captures. It's another example of just how much effort went into the show, though - they seem to have had 2 differently scaled models for pretty much every ship going...
